There won’t be enough coronavirus vaccines for a return to normal life until 2022, WHO scientist says | South China Morning Post

There won’t be enough coronavirus vaccines for a return to normal life until 2022, WHO scientist says

The need for social distancing and mask wearing will continue next year, leading World Health Organisation scientist predicts

Negotiations ongoing for US and China to participate in the WHO’s global alliance of equitable vaccine distribution


Do not expect there to be enough Covid-19 vaccines for life to return to normal until 2022, World Health Organisation (WHO) chief scientist Soumya Swaminathan predicted on Tuesday.

Swaminathan said the WHO’s Covax initiative, the resource-pooling mechanism to provide equitable vaccine access to countries with differing income levels, would only be able to garner around hundreds of millions doses by the middle of next year, meaning each of the some 170 countries or economies that have joined “will have something”.
But the number of doses will be too small to change the need for social distancing and mask wearing until production is increased and reaches the goal of 2 billion by the end of 2021.

==========================================================
The launch of these vaccines is not going to be the holy grail. The world will not be back to 'normal' for years.

“The way that people are picturing it is that in January you have vaccines for the whole world and things will start going back to normal – it is not how it works,” she said.

All things considered, I find it hard to accept ANYTHING the WHO has to say about anything.

Is this the same organization that advised against wearing a mask?

CDC and WHO offer conflicting advice on masks. An expert tells us why. - ABC News

If you are healthy, you only need to wear a mask if you are taking care of a person with COVID-19," the WHO guidelines read.

Cut out the middleman and go to Xi for the WHO's position.

This could unfortunately be true. Just because probably several vaccines will pop up next year, it doesn't mean they can be mass produced to the amount needed.

In contrast we have President 'In Two weeks' Trump who, naturally, you believe implicitly. Just like his "Within Two Weeks" complete healthcare plan announcement from mid-July. That never happened either. So what is it about the congenital liar that inspires such confidence among his adoring fans?

No response because I told you the truth and you don't like hearing it? Predictable. Dismiss yourself.
